Stay Safe!

Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park have an abundance of wildlife—elk, bighorn sheep, mule deer, and moose. Wildlife watching is a wonderful activity to do while you’re visiting, and we want you to be safe doing it! Maintain a safe distance, refrain from feeding the wildlife, and follow the direction of any park and town officials
